THE 2017/18 season will be one fondly remembered by Eberechi Eze, with the 19-year-old producing some eye-catching performances, in what was his breakthrough campaign.
Eze, who was loaned out to Wycombe Wanderers for the first half of the year, returned to QPR in January and has impressed everyone at Loftus Road in the last four months.
One of many QPR graduates to have been handed their full league debut this season, Eze told www.qpr.co.uk just how much he’s developed from playing first-team football this campaign.
“It’s been a great learning curve and a very good experience,” explained Eze.
He continued: “Obviously coming back and getting into the first team is what I wanted to do even when I was at Wycombe. It’s been a good season for me and hopefully, I can continue to show people what I can do.”
Eze ended the campaign with 39 appearances and seven goals to his name. 22 of those appearances came whilst playing for the Chairboys and he expressed his delight at his old team securing promotion to League One.
“I was so happy to see them get over the line. I went to see them the day they got promoted and I honestly thank god for it. It was a brilliant experience for me and one which gave me great belief, I’m just glad I could contribute.”
Like most of the Queens Park Rangers squad, Eze is looking forward to a summer break but already has half an eye on next season.
“I want to come back fitter, stronger, faster, and with more understanding of how the game is played," said Eze.
He added: “I know how important next season is for me personally but I’m looking forward to it.”
